Buried traits in the rhizosphere: crop control of nitrification

Biological nitrification inhibitors (BNIs) in root exudates reduce nitrification rates [1]:

•increasing N retention time in the root zone – mobility NH4+<<NO3-;

•decreasing fertilizer need and the associated environmental impact;

•providing an alternative to synthetic nitrification inhibitors.
